Well it took me 5 minutes to assemble a perl script for ip paranoia
daemons, acting as a 'smart grep' and cutting useless information and
showing the important. It can be as easy for the others, I believe, but
now I don't have the time to create a nicely distributable (config file
driven at least) version. 

Just use 4-5 greps in a crontab entry, so the important output residue
will end up in your mailbox.
